Charles G. Dawes had 65 guests at luncheonthe pages and employes of the Senate. He said to the pages: "Don't be 'hip flask' boys, andI suppose I shouldn't say it, perhaps the chaplain should say thisdon't smoke, don't swear and don't chew. Be clean; be yourself; stand against the crowd and you will amount to something." Charles G. Dawes received a note:
"Realizing that example is more potent than precept, will you not make as one of your New Year's resolutions the decision not to use tobacco yourself?
